Trunk lid supports S80 2008

Am I correct that, when you open the trunk lid and pick it up a little, it should rise up, powered by the gas struts, and not have a tendency to fall down? I think I may need to change out the struts.

I remain unable to figure out how struts replaced springs. There are, on the road today, cars from the 1950s or even earlier, still happily using the factory original springs on their hoods and trunk lids. You'll never be able to say that about 60-year-old vehicles that use gas struts.
